Dainty Dresses: Yellow Ruffle Dress

 I've been promising Bug some pretty dresses lately, and all of the sudden I've had the urge to make good on my promises.  So the Dainty Dresses series has begun.  I have lots to share!
 First up is the ruffle dress.  Natalie and I saw ruffle fabric at Hobby Lobby and neither of us could resist.  She requested yellow, and her wish is my command!
 This dress seriously took 10 minutes from start to finish.

I folded the fabric in half, right sides together (shook the ruffles so they were all facing down).
I placed a dress that I knew fit her well on top.  I traced dress and pinned the fabric together.  Cut the dress out and sewed the side seams.  Then I cut out the top, being mindful of the ruffle placement.  No hemming needed, because the fabric won't fray.
